Muirfield votes to admit women
Muirfield voted to admit female members for the first time in its 273-year history, clearing the Scottish golf club to return to the list of 10 courses that can host the British Open.
The club had voted last May to maintain its all-male policy and it was dropped from the Open rotation. Organizers of the British Open said Muirfield would now return to the rotation.
The host courses of the British Open have been announced through 2021. Muirfield has staged the British Open 16 times since 1892, most recently in 2013.
